He knows exactly how to make her burn…

Fire captain and bar owner Becker Thomas usually spends his nights alone, trying to escape painful memories from his past. When he meets a sexy, free-spirited brunette outside his bar, he knows he’s found the perfect way to forget for one night. But when he later discovers the woman he’s itching for another night with is his best friend’s sister, everything comes to a halt.

Just out of a toxic relationship, Megan Jansen is only in Hidden Oaks to visit her brother, photograph the firemen’s calendar, and then slip off to another adventure. The brooding man who gave her the best sex ever is an unexpected surprise. The problem is, he’s her brother’s friend and a fellow fireman, and Megan’s rule is no firemen. She knows she’s going to get burned …but keeping their hands off each other is easier said than done.

 
 
I have to start by saying a big thank you to Lauren Blakely for the bringing the steam AND the swoon once again in Melt for Him! I am such a big fan of her books, so I jumped at the chance to read and review her latest Brazen.
 
Blakely has not only created an engaging storyline, but she has developed and created a set of enjoyable characters that I couldn't get enough of.  I really liked both Megan and Becker. Their attraction to one another is instant and their banter is both flirty and fun. Megan does not plan to stay in the town of Hidden Oaks for long. She is temporarily passing through her hometown before she embarks on a new adventure in Portland. After a scorchingly hot night together, both of them realize that one night wasn't enough and  find themselves craving more. Megan doesn't do firefighters though. After tragically losing her father as a child, she resolves never to get involved with someone whose life is constantly put at risk, as she saw her mother withdraw into herself after losing her father. Becker knows he should stay away from Megan as well, as he discovers she is his good friend, Travis's sister. Travis warns him away from Megan, as he doesn't want to see his sister hurt, as he knows Becker has his own demons from the past that still haunt him to this day.
 
Staying away from one another is easier said than done. The two already know how good it is together, so the temptation and the desire are already there and it's like trying to keep two magnets apart. I love their scenes together. They want to give in to one another so badly and just when they start to, they come to their senses and pull back. Those scenes were the hottest of them all, because you could feel the tension just come right off the pages!
 
As protective as Megan's brother Travis is, I really liked him. The two are very close and were each other's strength when they were younger when their mom had checked out after their father's death. I hope we get his book next! I also liked reading about Smith and Jamie. I am excited to go back and read their novella, Burn for Me!
 
Blakely is just one of those incredibly engaging authors and I love being pulled into her books. They always read very quickly for me and always bring plenty of sweet, sexy, and swoon-worthy times!

  1. I read Burn for Me recently! I think it was free on amazon. I liked it but it was just so short that I didn't feel like we got any development -- but it IS a novella. Anyway -- I wnat to read this! We met Becker and saw Megan briefly in Burn for Me so I'm excited they get their own story!
